Unlucky second day for Yassen Popov in Australia
Australia : OMV CEE / PCWRC - Leg 2
It was an unlucky second day at the Telstra Rally Australia for the OMV CEE World Rally Team as well. After the tank had been exchanged on Friday evening, the turbo tube broke during the first special stage on Saturday.

The Bulgarian
OMV duo Yassen and Dilyan Popov therefore had to complete the next four special stages with dimished power of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX. The defective part was replaced at the service but retirement came nevertheless before the super stage.

That's rallying
OMV driver Yassen Popov had entered the second leg of the Telstra Rally Australia with a lot of optimism. But already a few kilometres before the end of special stage one new problems came up. The turbo tube broke. Therefore the full power of the Mitsubihi Lancer Evo IX was no longer available. The Bulgarian had to complete the following four special stages on “half gas”, so to say.

Only then was it possible to repair the damage in the service. Popov: “It really is a pity. The Mitsubishi was running great and we had a very good feeling. But that is rallying. I am not more disappointed than on Friday, right now. We absolutely want to finish the rally.
Each kilometre on gravel is extremely valuable. And it is a real challenge to finish a WRC-rally.”

But, alas, it was not to be. Things didn't go according to plan for the OMV CEE World Rally Team even after the turbo repair. At halftime of the 17th special stage a turbocharger damage occurred once again.

Popov: “There was no way to go on. This is obviously frustrating. But it wouldn't have made sense to go on and to endanger the engine. Therefore we decided to retire after the 18th special stage.” Since the possibility exists that a further turbocharger repair won't do the trick, the OMV CEE World Rally Team has decided not to partake of SupeRally on Sunday.
